If I choose to make a donation of $50.00 or more and have the ads removed will this give me bells every time I check a thread?

Unfortunately not. The bell ads were originally installed on the website to reward those who don't disable any other advertisements that are displayed on the site. If you make a donation and disable all of the ads, that will include the bells you sometimes find when checking a thread.

Actually, you'll still see the Bell ads. However, you won't see Bell ads every single time as the frequency will stay the same. This means most of the time you just won't see any ads as the only time an ad will appear is if it is a Bell ad.

Anywhere you see a regular ad now, you will see blank space after donating.  Anywhere you see a bell ad (or potentially any other ACC created thing, such as what we had back during resetti's return), you will still see it.  So that means you will still see bell ads at the same frequency.

Aurora6  has been donating $50.00 per year for the past 5 years.

During that time she has accumulated over 22,000,000 bells and 22 jackpots.

It seems that her donations have helped her to gain bells and jackpots.

If this is not the case could someone please tell me how she was able to do so much better than everyone else on this site.

When having the site's AdBlocker enabled you'll still see Bell ads show up. The only difference is that when there are no Bell ads, the square section where normal ads belong won't show up at all. I'm guessing that how it could help is that it's pretty obvious when you've got a Bell ad.

"I'm guessing that how it could help is that it's pretty obvious when you've got a Bell ad. "
Yes, I was think the same thing. If you are getting mostly blank spaces - when you do get bell ads, they would stick out like a sore thumb. I'm sure most of us miss some bells because they get used to things being in those add spaces and it just doesn't catch our attention as much.

I know many times I see bell ads but I have already clicked "next page" and *whooosh* they are gone! I know for sure I have missed numerous bell ads and at least three Jackpots because I see them flying off the page!

Jari, if that happens again, just go back to the previous page, and the Bell ad will still be there, for you to click it. If you do that within five minutes, of course.

You know, it's the oddest thing. I don't know if it is my browser or what but I have heard that many times over the years, but it doesn't work for me. I have tried many times but there are ads there when I "back up"!

Hm, that sounds as if the page refreshes in some way, when you go back. Which browser on which platform are you using? Not saying I could solve this for you, but maybe someone here has an idea?

I've downloaded Chrome on my MacBook (I don't have a PC), but I couldn't find any cache-related settings you could tinker with.

What usually happens when you press the back arrow in your browser, is that the previous page is loaded from cache. It sounds to me this doesn't happen in your case, and that the page is refreshed instead, causing the Bell ads to disappear.

I found a link to an article in which someone is suffering from the opposite of your problem, and comes up with a solution: Defeating the browser back button cache. Maybe one of the friendly Devs on here can help you figure out how to apply the opposite of his solution?

Sorry OP for hijacking your thread.

gonefishing - You have also accumulated quite a few bells, as have many people who are active on the site and also searching. It's about doing both. I know from personal experience that I can be active with about 15 tabs open on ACC at times, but because I'm flitting from tab to tab, and concentrating on work, I regularly miss bells because I'm not checking the entire page. So I can't say that the bells aren't there for me.

I also have quite a few more bells than some people who've donated money to ACC, and I've never donated.
